wanted to call and get my comments on today's ceremony. it is very moving. i did not vote for mr. obama. i hope he surrounds himself with people that we give him counsel. he was hoping we would come together, works for the next four years. the most moving part was beyonce's singing of the national anthem. i hope we can go forward as one nation. >> she writes the benediction is lovely but what about separation of church and state? next is a call from santiago. i thought president obama's speech was really good. agree with james taylor and beyonce. their performances were great. he did not talk about bipartisanship and he should have. host: the speech was clocked in at just over 18 minutes. next is a call from gary. caller: thank you for letting me call. i was very impressed with its. it is a good day for us all to come together. it is a very special shout out you were finishing the national anthem. they started ripping the president's, his agenda, his speech. this is fairly biased news. >> your seen pictures from inside the capitol. but macsharry this beautiful shot. the congressional lu
address. mr. obama's worst term a lot of evidence of the peril to the planet. record-breaking heat waves, forest fires, disappearing polar ice in a court with the prediction of the climate scientists. the effects were happening faster and more severely than predicted. you do not have to believe the scientists while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure
schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours. host: that's the latest ad by the n.r.a. put out yesterday getting a lot of feedback about the ad using the -- invoking the president's children in that. "the washington times" has this headline. the only headline about president obama's event later this morning. obama recruits children to push gun bans. acting a month after the connecticut school shooting, president obama will unveil sweeping package of gun control wednesday and will challenge congress to ban high-capacity magazines and military-style semiautomatic rifles involved in recent shooting rampages. host: that is our question for all of you. if president obama acts on his own for executive action, do you support idea of that? we're getting your take on that this morning. we'll go to sandra if sulphur springs, texas, a republican there. hi, sandra. caller: hi. how
-- that the conceptual problem begins with the definition of assault weapons. mr. obama certainly didn't define it. the ban that was imposed in 1994 -- guest: that's just not accurate. first of all, the features of an assault weapon are not cosmetic. they're functional. i mean, for example, under the bill that i think will be introduced in congress, if you have, for example, a semi-automatic rifle that can take a detachble magazine, and that can be a high-capacity 30, 50-round magazine, and has a pistol grip, that is an assault rifle. that's not cosmetic. the significance of the pistol grip is that it's used to fire from the hip. literally shooting from the hip. where you are not eyeing your target. that is meant to spray fire, to hit a lot of people very quickly. and while these are semi-automatic weapons, not automatic weapons, they can fire actually almost as quickly. you can empty a 30-round magazine in about five seconds using a semi-automatic assault rifle. and additionally, the federal bill that lapsed in 2004 did prevent crime and prevented the use of assault weapons in crime. there was a
, with a lot of equipment. and i'll be there. >> but it will be more presumably than just mrs. obama and the daughters and the president? >> i believe there will be some family members, but i don't have -- i'll see if i have -- if i can get information on which additional members will be there. >> and then at the dinner affair afterwards, who would be involved? >> i'm sorry, which affair? >> on sunday, after the private swearing-in. >> i'll have to check on that. i'm not sure. there's a series of events, but i'm not sure which one you're referring to. >> well, just what he will be -- >> what's he going to do after he's sworn in? >> -- participating in immediately after he's sworn in. >> i'll try to find out. >> there have been several news reports about an incident in syria. december 23rd, six people died from some sort of gas attack. several people on the ground seem to believe that it was a chemical agent. the state department did a couple of investigations. they couldn't corroborate that. on tuesday, the white house put out a statement saying only that it didn't match what you kno
was not able to do. caller: i would ask your guest to address mr. obama's promise which drew in the young voters that he was going to be great unifier. i would contend he has deliberately set out to polarize the country and that 51% of americans voted for him but that the other 49% of americans that voted for him feel like he is sticking his tongue out at us and giving us the finger. i feel we are more polarized than we were and i see that as a promise greatly broken. guest: in fact, there is a promise to the fact that we do have the promise broken. we represented by his promise to bring both parties together to pass an agenda. as you say, there has not been success at that. there is a very robust debate about who is to blame but in terms of actions -- i have not seen him stick out his tongue or flipping the bird at anyone but i can say event this is definitely a very polarized place. that is a promise broken. host: here is a tweet - guest: i think more than ever. this is the kind of journalism we should have been practicing years ago. there is this battle of talking points and you hear t
enacted into law and it's opposed by president obama. mr. speaker, we need to stand up for life. again i want to thank my good friend and cleeg from nebraska for having this second -- colleague from nebraska for having this second special order on defending life and like jeff i do look forward to the march for life on january 25, where we'll all rally in defense of the defenseless. i yield back to my friend. mr. fortenberry: if the gentleman would be interested in entering into a dialogue, i'm sorry i missed your earlier statements but let me say to you thank you for your stalwart leadership, your deep commitment to the beautiful gift of life, to saying to america consistently, constantly, ferre vert lently, -- fervently, with heart and emotion for 30-plus years, i think you've been here, approaching 30 years, that there is a better way. we can do better than this. we have to do better than this. women deserve better. but in your last comment us touched upon the issue of sex-selecteded abortion and wonder if in your earlier comments you had talked about where policies such as one-child p
, madam chair and chairman frelinghuysen. mr. runyan: the regional grants program wasest tablied in 2004 to help prevent damages from future natural disasters in coastal states. it is not part of president obama's national ocean policy this program is supported but to a competitive grant program first authorized by president bush in 2004. to support urgent coastal needs. this program is also vol tear and state-led with individual states opting into the program. in the areas hardest hit by hurricanes in the mid atlantic region, the council that was established by the mid atlantic governors in 2009, these governors worked together to address the coastal issues and address risk. state universities like rutgers university in new jersey worked to coordinate with states to determine how best to mitigate future disaster risks. the reassurance association of america has written an amendment due to concern about the risk. this program is not part of president obama's national ocean policy and was established by president bush. i thank you and yield back the remainder of my time. the chair: the g
violation of women's rights in china and now we today under the obama administration are funding it, mr. fortenberry and mr. speaker. it's something that has to end. we should be on the side of life and respect, not enabling --. . mr. fortenberry: people may not agree with us, but the vast majority of americans do agree that the government should not be entangled in this. in other words, taxpayer money should not be going for the provision of abortion. that's one bit of good news. the second bit of good news is, i think, again, those of us who have been here a little while, who have been in these trenches trying to beg and plead for an increase of awareness as to what the consequences of abortion are, young people are recognizing that, again, there's got to be a better way. they've lived with this through their generation. they've seen the scars, seen the wounds, seen the effects on society and they're coming forward and saying women deserve better. can't we be loving enough, can't we be big enough to do something different here? and i think that's a great sign of encouragement for two
, president obama stated that we cannot continue to cut our way to prosperity. well, mr. president, on the contrary. we cannot tax and spend our way to prosperity either. i think tonight we're starting what i hope will become a regular occurrence. as we look at it, it's what i believe we have to do. and i believe it's about telling our story. and telling why conservative principles mat around how conservative principles, when we explain how we can get debt off their backs, spending under control, then it's freedom for their kids to have a better future. so they can go to college, so they can buy that or start that new business, to employ other people. i believe america's greatest gift was found in the free -- founding the free enterprise system and that's what we can encourage by getting our own fiscal house in order here tonight. this is a time for us to come together. and i'm pleased to stand with you and the other freshmen here tonight and as we continue to discuss just that we're here to work. we're here to make some hard choices. and realize it's all in america's best interest
